Falafel wins my nomination for ‘Most Delicious Mediterranean Food’ — well anyway, it’s tied with hummus, which means it scores pretty darn high on the deliciousness scale. Traditionally, Greek chefs fry chickpea patties to make this yummy vegetarian treat. But you can make scrumptious baked falafel with much less oil, and much less trouble, twithout that high-fat attention-hogging frying pan!
Veggie Patch has come out with some new flavors just in time for the holidays. Their meatless meatballs are bite-sized and serve up well with a toothpick. The falafel tastes great in a pita. Both come pre-cooked, are vegetarian, and serve up fast for a cocktail party or holiday entertaining.
